It’s Tamara’s turn to cook dinner. This AirBnb has become a home now, we’re all too used to waiting for stove time, jumping in the second our French neighbors leave it open for a second. Tamara makes me her favorite dinner from Childhood. It’s a curry spiced rice dish which is strange enough to my American pallet but then she goes on to add raisins and bananas on top. A combination I never imagined, but loved instantly. We eat on the tiny porch, using chairs as tables and watch an old woman hang her clothes to dry.
